Japanese Climbing Fern

This very attractive climbing fern is an attractive foliage vine for a trellis or arbor but this species has become an invasive nuisance in some Deep South bottomlands. For this reason it should probably not be planted in zone 9 or in some of the warmer areas of zone 8.  In much of Zone 8 it is generally killed back in winter and is therefore less problematic.  As with most ferns it likes fertile organic soil and lots of moisture.
